    Realistic isn't always better looking.

    Sorry, I just had to.
    OT: I just love the way Charr run on all fours. I can't tell if Blizzard ripped this from ArenaNet when they decided to make the Worgen run on all fours, or if it was the other way around.

    I think both were already doing this seperately, just as shatterer wasn't ripped off of deathwing, or vice versa. Thank god the charr animation is better than the spastic bunny hop worgens do, I literaly burst out in laughter first time I saw it

    This sounds true.
    Also, I never thought of it as a bunny hop, but now that you mention it...

    I'm just glad all of the animations for the models are beautifully done, I played Rift recently and laughed my ass off at most of the animations. Dwarves especially. If you thought Humans in WoW ran like they have stick up their butt, then you should YouTube the dwarf run animations in Rift. Thank goodness GW2 puts both WoW and Rift animations to shame.

    Very well then, why does games and movies that associate technology are usually barren and desolate themes?
    The most important thing to realize is, no matter what you experience you are never alone; no matter what you are struggling through, there is always someone who is more unfortunate.

    Because that's what people who are into those things and the producers of said movies are into those things. But hey look at it this way, Star Trek isn't barren, Star Wars isn't barren, Mass Effect isn't barren either, nor is Tron per-say. Yes they have desolate planets and areas, but they don't revolve around desolate and Barren themes.

    The reason why the Charr have that theme is because in Guild Wars 1 the Charr gods were Titans, and in order to summon those deities, they had to Burn Titan Effigies. They burned all of Old Ascalon. Charr are barren and desolate because they burned shit. They're not the only ones who use technology. Look at the Asura, they're the most technologically advanced race in Guild Wars, they don't have barren and desolate landscapes. They pretty much live in a jungle (where Rata Sum is).

    Not all nations take such a dividing line. While it's true that now, most people have the choice, Charr civilization is obviously not modern culture. They're probably somewhere around the middle of the industrial revolution.

    Those who did not work on that system, mainly third world countries, are now well... third world countries. Obviously, some have done without that system, but overall the barbaric cultures are behind.
    That's opinion really, most third world countries are that way because they're economically unstable due to being run by greedy dictators. Many of them have little to no military culture at all and could hardly be classified as "barbaric".

    Not all of them do this, but for those that do this is why, when you have the technology to live in any barren area, and you can make a form of living out of it, you probably will if it is your only option, and if you don't have much choice for others. So in a way it just shows a form of survival. Trigun is a good example of what I am trying to say, the life as you see, sucks on that show, but the reason they were there is because they became stuck there, and the reason why most people lived that long, is because of the advanced technology that survived the crash into the planet.

    Go play Guild Wars, there is plenty of fashion in it. The armor system is based around the set you like, not the set that is best.

    That said, I cannot fully understand your question. If it is asking about why movies focusing on technology are barren and desolate?

    First, back up your theory that games and movies with a heavy influence of technology are barren and desolate. This will have to represent a majority of technology based movies for your question to hold ground.

    Second, read up on the industrial revolution. You wont see fashion and design, you will see industry.

    Third, fashion is an opinion. As nbm02ss pointed out by quoting Oscar Wild, it is something people become sick of very quickly.

    Fourth, you are doing an ok job trolling, you could be doing much better though.

    Fifth, vikings, ever heard of them? Vikings were a warrior people. They did not care about fashion and design. The only thing they cared about was the blessings of Odin, Thor, and Freya.

    Educate your self a little about the lore of a game before trying to start an argument about the sequel. Blzsmri seems to have covered that pretty well though.

    The whole "fashion" argument that's being fought with Deyadissa is kind of goofy, in my opinion.
    I'm not going to jump to conclusions by calling him/her a troll, but the argument should have died seeing as it has nothing to do with the thread.
    Make a thread about it if it's such a "deep" subject that needs to be discussed.

    If you can photoshop a Charr to look like Duke, then we might have a legitimate battle on our hands.

    1) The brutal, utilitarian aesthetic suits the theme of the race.
